Stackaveli, is a song about change, however it still captures the fun and positive times in Shown 1K’s life, highlighted by songs that will get you moving and feeling good. Standout tracks show how Shown 1K gets down on “Dolce Gabanna,” a high-energy track filled with a harmonic flow and dope bass that will make anyone feel good. And that is only the start. His whole project’s filled with high-energy bops. You just gotta “Know What’s Up.”
With the release of his fourth album Stackaveli on all major streaming platforms, Atlanta-based rapper Shown 1K is reborn into a new artist as he creates a new sound for an entirely new generation of fans. Inspired by one of his musical influences, 2Pac, Stackaveli is underpinned by meticulous rhymes and untamed lyricism. He also possesses in his pocket a harmonic flow that once heard, will never be forgotten.
Shown 1K is the vehicle which allows this MC to emerge from the hustle of the streets and become born again into a world of beats and rhymes. With his dedication to his craft and his hustle mentality, it’s no surprise to see why he has shared the stage with big artists such as Lil Baby, Gucci Mane, Moneybagg Yo and Boosie. The idea of rebirth is central in Stackaveli and also evident by Shown1k, and his current career, from “before music [he] was hustling, trappin’ like a MF,” to “sharing the same stage as other hip-hop music legends.
“Music is my therapy. When I can’t talk to people, I talk to my microphone. No one really ever paid attention to me or my opinions until I started expressing myself through my music. Not only do I rap, but I also have a harmonic flow with metaphoric bars and punchlines that are out of this world,” he shares in a recent interview.
Stackaveli embodies all of the lessons and hardships he has faced throughout his life. Focused on tomorrow and not hanging on to the past, Shown 1K is the rapper that is the cure to what ails us. Brilliantly authentic with talent to burn, he has arrived on the main stage and long may he stay.
From the intro to the outro, Shown 1K proves himself as someone who’s here to stay,
“I feel like it’s very important how you arrive and leave, and I’ma always give everything we are about to talk about in this body of work and leave on a good note,” he says.
